Sweating Profusely When Sick

Many people, especially women, wonder how they can stop sweating at night while they are sleeping. It is truly annoying (not to mention uncomfortable) when you wake up drenched in sweat. Not only are you soaking wet, the bedclothes may be as well. You then get chilled, and it seems to be an endless cycle. What can you doc

Many women have had a horrible experience with night sweats, myself included. It is almost like an internal furnace that wells up gradually, until you find that your face, chest and others areas are sweating profusely. Not only is it irritating, it interrupts your sleep and you get very little rest. It truly can disrupt your life. So, how can you stop night sweating while you are sleepingc Here are some helpful tips:
1. If you drink a good amount of caffeine, try cutting back.

2. Sleep in a cool room. Keeping your thermostat around 65 degrees can help, and you may even want to consider placing a fan beside your bed.

3. Practice meditation, deep breathing or some other relaxation technique. If you are a high stress person, this can make your night sweats worse.

As women approach menopause, this can become a real problem. Even women in their early forties who are in perimenopause often experience this. Sleep quality is poor, you are tired and after a while it can make you very irritable. Hormone changes cause these temperature fluctuations, and you often find yourself breaking out in a sweat without one seconds notice.

You may want to try wicking sleepwear and herbal treatments as well as the tips above, as these make a miraculous difference in the lives of many women. There are other effective solutions as well! Are you ready to start sleeping comfortably again, without waking up in a pool of sweatc

    I’M VERY APPREHENSIVE AROUND NEEDLES. WHENEVER I HAVE TO GO FOR A BLOOD TEST, I GET THIS SICK FEELING WHILE SITTING IN THE ROOM. I FEEL LIKE I’M GONNA HAVE A PANIC ATTACK ONCE THAT NEEDLE IS NEAR ME! I CAN TELL THAT A PANIC ATTACK WILL RESULT BECAUSE I’M SWEATING PROFUSELY AND MY HEARTRATE RISES! EVERYTIME THAT HAPPENS THE NURSE CALLS FOR ANOTHER NURSE TO HOLD MY HEAD IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION TO KEEP ME FROM LOOKING. I’M VERY SCARED OF NEEDLES AND CAN’T BEAR THE TORTURE! WHAT AM I GONNA DO TO AVOID FREAKING OUT?

    Why do you sweat profusely when your fever breaks & why am I sick again!?
    Okay, the second part of the question may just be me venting, but I had this exact same flu thing two weeks ago…to the date! Body aches, nausia, but no vomitting, fever that tylenol won’t bring down, but ibuprofen will, completely spaced out and my appetite is fine unless my fever goes over a 100. Who gets the same exact flu twice and in two weeks! Sigh

    Anyway, I just started wondering why sweating is a sign that your fever is breaking. Wouldn’t it make more sense to sweat when your temp is on it’s way up, not down? And, now that I think about it, fevers actually give you the chills…what is that about?

    I feel so sick…please amuse me!

      It is normal for your body to sweat when your fever breaks. Sweating is your body’s natural way of cooling itself off, so it makes perfect sense, really. BTW, the flu can last roughly 2 weeks unless treated. There is a medicine on the market that will shorten your symptoms to about 1 week. It’s called Tamiflu, but it’s not available without a perscription.

    How do I “sweat out” being sick?
    I’ve been sick for about two days and this morning I began to sweat profusely, I went back to sleep and when I woke up my body felt a heck of a lot better.

    I’m not sure how I began to sweat out, so I need tips on doing it.

      Sweat is a side effect of the fever, it doesn’t have anything to do with making you well again on its own. Incidentally fevers do not ‘metabolize’ viruses.

      A higher body temperature is supposedly your body’s mechanism for killing off the virus.

      “Fevers may be useful to some extent since they allow the body to reach high temperatures, causing an unbearable environment for some pathogens. White blood cells also rapidly proliferate due to the suitable environment and can also help fight off the harmful pathogens and microbes that invaded the body”

    Why do I sometimes feel sick and sweat profusely when I’m sleeping?
    Are these homone changes at certain times of the month?
    yes i had my blood pressure checked a week ago

    • Smiley says:

      Menopause (hormonal changes)
      Anxiety
      Medications
      Gastrointestinal reflux disease (GERD)
      Drug and alcohol abuse
      Diabetes

      These are the potential medical causes of night sweats. Sometimes night sweats can be a sign of cancer but this comes with fever and weight loss as well.
      Drink nettle tea for night sweats or chamomille tea to help you sleep all through the night.

    Need Help!!! Sweating profusely after having baby. Does anyone have an idea who to see?
    I’m at my wits end! Not sure who to see anymore. Four months after I had my baby I got sick with laryngitis, fever, chills and all. I began sweating profusely ALL OVER my body shortly thereafter (I don’ really sweat from my feet or palms). I was nursing the baby at that time also. I quit nursing when the baby was six months so I could get some medical attention because my gynecologist wouldn’t prescribe anything harsh. He also thought I was just going through postpartum. Anyway, at six months I was given anti-depressant pills. Well, after a few months I quit taking them because it didn’t help the sweating at all. I saw another gynecologist; he put me on birth control pills, that didn’t help either. I’ve seen an endocrinologist; he told me he couldn’t help me because the MRI and the blood work all came out normal and found nothing wrong with me. He then said I needed to see a doctor who specializes in “hyperhidrosis” but he wasn’t sure that was the problem since I sweat all over my body. The blood work results for all doctors show I’m a healthy person; they also don’t show my situation is non-hormonal, non-menopausal and not the thyroid as well. The MRI was done on my head to check if it was my pituitary gland. I’m normal. I was kinda hoping something would show wrong so that one of the doctors could help me. I’ve had acupuncture done to me as well taking chinese herbal pills…did not help! I don’t know who else to see. I need someone who can help me and turn me away and say they can’t help me. Someone please help!
    I also go through extreme chills immediately after I sweat. My body shivers and hands shake because I get so cold. I go through these sweats throughout the day and everyday. I am going now on my ninth month now. I am really tired of this.
    I want to see a doctor who won’t turn me away anymore.
    P.S. This is my 4th baby.
